Keto Pumpkin Spice Latte

I have quite the Starbucks addiction and love giving keto makeovers to many of their popular beverages. We’ve made a keto frappucino and a keto pink drink. With fall around the corner, it was only time to share a keto pumpkin spice latte. 

It’s no secret that I had an unhealthy addiction to Starbucks. The keyword here is had, as I’ve made a valiant effort to stop my almost daily visits. It was partly due to the exceedingly high price for a single beverage and partly due to the lack of keto options.

Sure, I could stick to my usual keto basics of a cold brew or Americano with cream, but your boy here loves his fancy drinks, especially when the holiday season rolls around! 

Is the Starbucks pumpkin spice latte keto friendly? 

The Starbucks pumpkin spice latte is not keto-friendly. Even if you make low carb substitutions like sugar free syrup and heavy cream instead of milk, it still will contain enough carbs to kick someone out of ketosis.

Luckily, you can easily make a homemade pumpkin spice latte that is cheaper than Starbucks, more delicious than Starbucks, AND it’s keto to boot! As such, I’ve been meaning to share a keto pumpkin spice latte recipe. It tastes exactly like the popular coffee shop beverage and is so easy to make!

No sugar and no syrups are needed, but you’d never tell. The texture is smooth, silky, and topped with whipped cream. It’s pleasantly sweet and full of pumpkin flavor, and can be as strong or as weak as you like! 

I had some friends over for coffee the other day and served them this keto version of the PSL and they could NOT believe it was low carb- It tasted just as good as Starbucks!

How do you make a keto pumpkin spice latte? 

The Ingredients

  • Pumpkin puree– 100% unsweetened pumpkin puree or homemade pumpkin puree. Do not use pumpkin pie filling! 
  • Keto maple syrup OR simple syrup– Skip the overpriced ones that are available in some grocery stores or online. Instead, make your own! If you don’t want any maple flavor, use keto simple syrup
  • Milk of choice– Any milk of choice can be used, like almond, coconut, or cashew milk. 
  • Pumpkin pie spice mix– A mixture of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves. 
  • Espresso OR brewed coffee– Use espresso shots for the authentic ‘Starbucks’ style, or freshly brewed coffee. Like any coffee beverage, you can use caffeine-free varieties if you like. 
  • Whipped cream– A must for any specialty coffee beverage. I use keto whipped cream

The Instructions

Start by adding the pumpkin puree, keto syrup, milk of choice, and pumpkin pie spice mix in a small saucepan and place it over medium heat, until it begins to simmer. Remove from the heat and whisk in the espresso or freshly brewed coffee and pour into mugs or glasses. Top with whipped cream and serve immediately. 

If you’d like an iced pumpkin spice latte, let the mixture cool to room temperature before pouring into glasses filled with ice.

    1. I love your recipes! Can’t wait to try this one!
      Just a quick note: in your note for a pumpkin pie spice substitute you listed ginger twice.

    2. This is so good, I actually used regular simple syrup I made up real quick and double the pumpkin cause I roll like that ( not Keto, I know) I used macadamia nut milk. I love when pumpkin spice also has actual pumpkin in it, so this is perfect!
